Today I tweet for women who will never get caught being in a relationship with a broke man. If you having man problems I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems and broke men ain’t one. HIT ME!

I just can’t. Can’t do it. Won’t do it.

You ever see women on Twitter just wailing and carrying on about the men they had kids with?
All types of tears, especially on Father’s Day.

True story, one Father’s Day, I saw one woman tweet that her baby daddy was broke AND ugly, and I’m like. . . well, sis. . .

[looks around]

Why did you have a baby with him then?

You had to not only decide you were gonna date this man – who, according to you, is not only broke, but is also ugly – but you also then decided to have sex with them (without a condom, let’s be real) and then have a baby . . .

And, I’m just looking at the whole situation like. . .

Wouldn’t be me.

Speaking of broke boys. . . y’all been talking about Mary J. Blige’s divorce from Kendu J. Blige and I think it’s much ado about nothing.

I mean, really, they don’t have any kids, they were married in New Jersey – which isn’t a community property state, and they both signed a prenup.

I’m not a lawyer. I’m not a judge. But, as a layperson, I feel like if their prenup is reasonable, the judge is just gonna go by the prenup. And, Kendu might get something, but it’s not gonna be based on these demands that have become public.

Like, have you seen these demands?

Bruh. . .

He’s requesting. . .

$8k for a private chef
$3.2k for a personal trainer
$1k clothing allowance
$5k to continue paying his parents each month
$71k for rent that he owes to several properties (???)
$5k to support his two children from a previous relationship (???)
$2.5k for auto expenses and transportation
$5,708 for maintenance and repair on his properties (???)
$5,732 for groceries
$21,677 for charitable donations (charitable donations?)
And, $10,000 for entertainment, gifts, and vacations

Which all comes out to a whopping one hundred thirty-eight thousand eight hundred seventeen dollars, and zero cents – not including the $100k he wants for attorney fees and the $30k he wants for accounting fees.

Bruh. He tried it.

Moral of the story, ladies, marry up. Don’t marry broke boys.
